John David's 2005 Flashback

I decided to start the 2005 flashbacks with John David. Since he was only 2 1/2 months old when 2005 started, John David has of course probably changed the most. He was a very laid back and happy baby. In February of that year, he spent eight days at Chippenham Hospital for a case of RSV. The nurses and doctors told us several times while we were there that he was one of the happiest kid they'd ever seen for being so sick. That year, the girls celebrated their birthdays at the hospital. As a result of the RSV and already having a predisposition for asthma, John David spent the next solid 18 months on daily breathing treatments. Most of the time multiple times a day. Since then, we have enjoyed several long breaks from breathing treatments, but are in the midst of Spring treatments right now. He has always been a good sport about it, and even now at 3 1/2 he obeys and sits still for his treatments. He does usually make it known that he is not happy about it, though! :)John David was also the biggest and chubbiest of all of our babies so far, weighing in at almost 9 1/2 pounds when he was born. But looking at his chubby cheeks always made us smile! I really enjoyed looking back at these pictures. Hope you do too! Love you all, and thank you to God Almighty who has for now blessed us with these incredible little people.
